History In HD: The Last Bomb 1 x 60'
This film is a document of one of the 21st Bomber Command’s long distance, low altitude, daylight strikes over Tokyo during the spring and summer of 1945. Launched from the hard-won South Pacific island of Iwo Jima, the 3,000 mile death-defying mission was considered one of the most dangerous of World War II. Yet this rare Technicolor film transferred to stunning HD covers the mission in its entirety – from General Curtis Lemay’s initial planning stage, through fighter action and ‘bomb’s away,’ and finally to final touch down back at the base on Iwo Jima.

Featuring spectacular gun-camera footage shot by P-51 Mustang pilots as they engage in air to air combat and escort the huge B-29’s to their targets, this unique film from the archives now in high-definition takes you on a perilous journey over Japan.
